Opening day dawned on the 10th March to a very wet morning from the torrential rain received during the night. The far end of the reservoir the reservoir was already carrying some colour from the swollen Eye Brook flowing into the reservoir, there was that much water with the reservoirs level rose 10inch during the day!

Bank anglers fishing from Pollards Jump down past Robbo cabin reported a good number of overwintered brown to 4lb. As the Eyebrook has a wild population of breeding all browns must be returned.

A good number of bank anglers fished the Hawthorns down to mucky bay with the hawthorns producing in the morning & mucky bay fishing well in the afternoon.

Opening day & as you would expect lures such as cat’s whisker, dancer, orange lures & blobs caught the majority although a few anglers who fished buzzer patterns were rewarded with Roy Swinfield fishing small buzzer patterns off pollards jump catching 10 trout.

Eyebrook Fishery ranger & guide Toff Crowther fished for a couple of hours before his shift & caught 10 trout from the hawthorns with Toff commenting how close to the margins the fish were.

On our second day of the season 11th March the bottom end of the reservoir was coloured from the day before although the area in front of the lodge, down past the hawthorns to Sam`s dyke and across to pollards jump remained reasonably clear & fishable with Mike Jenkins & Steve Wright fishing on a two day package catching over 40 fish for the day. Member D Chadwick caught 7 from the bank with Keith Harding & Mike Clarke catching 10 trout to the boat including pike to double figures.

NEW LODGE LANDLINE – 01536 770 264 –please update your contact list as this will be the only landline working for the Eyebrook Fishing Lodge

Eyebrook finished the season on a high and produced great sport. There were a good number of quality browns and rainbows being caught. The fish certainly seemed to be feeding harder on the fry after the first frost of the year. Changing winds and conditions didn’t help and moved the fish around the reservoir. The most productive areas were the dam wall, Dogwood bay and the basin in a south westerly or the Island to Robbo’s cabin during the north winds. There were a good number of bank anglers this week targeting fry feeders into the margins. Most fished the Belle or lodge corner and the Island and generally all caught fish. Minkies, tubes or floating fry patterns taking most fish fished on a floating or intermediate line.

Members Richard Watson and Bill Whittle started the week very well. Drifting in a south westerly from the tower to Harrison’s corner they connected with over 20 rainbows some of which had grown on and had silver rays in their tails. All the fish took a white minkie fished on a floating line.

Wednesday fished very well with a rod average of 5.2. Mr G Martin and Mr S Martin fished Eyebrook twice this week and on both days, they caught plenty of fish. Most fish falling to a white minkie fished as a point fly on an intermediate line they drifted from Dogwood bay into the basin. Their best fish of the trip was a brown trout of over 5lbs which couldn’t resit the minkie just off the weed at the stones. Adrian Cook and boat partner Des Burgess caught 15 hard fighting rainbows whilst drifting the basin.

Mr Shields fished with a floating line and diawl bachs to secure his 6 fish whilst boat fishing. He also lost 4 at the net! Peter Bax and Michael Daymond finished their season on a high. Michael caught 14 fish on blobs and boobies fished on a slow sinking line. Member David Hay had the surprise of his life whilst boat fished very close to the dam wall. Soon after starting his afternoon session he hooked into a fish that went like a “steam train” ! After severalminutes of play David got the fish to the surface and safely into his net. It proved to be a fish of a life time. A perfect brown trout with super huge fins and tail, which tipped the scales at 7lb 14oz and swam away to grow even bigger. Well done David!

Float tuber Brent Hart also caught a perfect Eyebrook brown trout in weed cutter bay. He fished with an intermediate and white humungous and literally got towed around the reservoir when the fish took. Pictures of both Brents and David Brown trout can be found on our Facebook page flyfishstore

Sunday saw the end of season fur and feather match. A pairs match fished to fishery rules, 28 anglers fished to an 8 fish kill permit. Conditions were ‘challenging’ with a strong northerly and temperatures felt also artic! Most boats concentrated their efforts in the rough water in front of the dam and steadily caught the odd fish. There were only one pair to get their limits. Who else but Eyebrooks very own Lee Henfrey and boat partner Nigel Keeber. The pair caught their limit bag for a weight of 29lbs 8ozs. Lee said it wasn’t easy. With no fish in the boat at 12 o’clock he almost started to panic! They had covered a lot of water and had very little interest. Their hard work paid off when lee finally connected to a fish off Robbos cabin. Nigel was in too just a few casts later. All 16 fish came to a tube fly fished a few feet down. Second place went to Jobe Burnham and Toff Crowther with 11 fish for 20lb 6 oz. Jobe and Toff also caught two brown trout of 5lb and 4lb 8oz which were safely returned. A big thank you to everyone who attended, and an extra special thank you to Tony Smith for cooking the breakfast and Mark Goodge for the soup in the evening. The day raised £164.50 for the English disabled fly fishers.

Conditions made things hard this week. strong winds over the weekend resulted in no boats on the water. Earlier in the week fished well on fry patterns and washing line nymphs. Water temperature remains at 13.0 degrees.

During the week boats were concentrating in Dogwood bay, dam wall and The Island. Most anglers fishing fry patterns or nymphs high in the water. Bank anglers have been catching fish. The Stones and Dogwood bay proving to be worth a look as is the Island and Chestnut tree. First thing in the morning seems to be the best time to target the fry feeders in the margins.

Mervyn White had a red-letter day on Tuesday with boat partner Mr D Pink. They caught twenty plus fish on a trusty cat’s whisker fished high in the water in front of the dam wall. Members Stuart Bilsdon and John Woodings found feeding fish off the tower. They targeted them with a black and green lure fished on a floating line.

Wednesday saw the annual English Disabled Fly Fishers Fur and Feather match. Fished to fishery rules, 12 anglers caught 33 fish. John Thompson was victorious on the day catching 6 fish and taking his 3 fish limit for 6lb 10oz. John also caught the best fish of the day, a 3lb 6 oz silvered rainbow. Pictures and full results on the English disabled fly fishers facebook page. Please give them a ‘Like’.

Thursday fished well producing an average of 4.57. Ed Douglas spent the day with in house guide Lee Henfrey learning the best methods to fish with sinking lines. Ed certainly got the hang of it and caught throughout the day on Di3 and 5 lines with snakes and large fry patterns. Mr Armstrong also had a successful trip, catching over a dozen fish on a similar tactic. Snakes on a fast glass line worked best for him fished off the Island.

Returns were over 5 fish a rod for Friday. Lots of anglers reporting good numbers of feeding fish and vicious takes on fry patterns. Member Bob Margery caught over 20 fish whilst drifting the basin. He fished a hot head dial bach and a cat’s whisker. David and Reece Priestly had a cracking day on daddies. Drifitng the basin they caught over 25 fish and had many offers.

Returns weren’t so healthy over the weekend with no boats out only a hand full of bank anglers braved the strong winds. Most anglers fished Dogwood bay to the Hawthorns.

NEW LODGE LANDLINE – 01536 770 264 – please update your contact list as this will be the only landline working for the Eyebrook Fishing Lodge

Eyebrook has produced great sport this week, with an overall rod average of 5.5. Various methods working depending on conditions and time of day. Lots of fry feeders around during the morning at the tower to Dog wood bay. During the middle of the day when air temperatures are warmer there are more fish feeding on insects. Black buzzers and crunchers fished on a washing line are working very fished on the drift or at anchor. Dry flies are working when there’s cloud cover and a steady ripple. Black hoppers and emerger patterns working well. Most boats have fished over the deeper water this week, starting drifts from the Belle and Dogwood and drifting to the three trees or Harrison’s corner. Other anglers have found fish elsewhere, fry feeder below Robbos cabin and The Chesnut Tree or drifting the Island to the willows fishing dries and have found quality fish although not the easiest to catch. The bank is improving each day with fish feeding on the fry into the margins. The dam, Dogwood and the Belle being most productive.

Mondays average a healthy 5.7 fish a rod. Most anglers fishing the dam wall caught on fry patterns. Dave Shaer netted 8 for his morning session fishing a white lure on an intermediate line. Mr Wither fished a mix of dries and washing line and caught twenty plus fish whilst drifting the basin.

Tuesday and Wednesday were trickier with a strong south westerly wind but the average remained over 4 fish a rod for both days. Lures on an intermediate or floating working best in the wave. Members Clive Moore and Ian Jobe caught fish on every drifting during the afternoon. Drifting from the middle of the dam to the three trees. Mr Watson caught 18 fish on dries during the morning, fishing calmer water off the Leicester bank and a washing line with crunchers and a FAB on the point during the afternoon.

Thursday was an interesting day with anglers reporting fishing moving on the surface but coming short to the dries. T Grove caught 10 fish on a black hopper and daddy long legs. Ken Waters (picture on Facebook flyfishstore) caught very well from the disabled boat. Fishing with a mix of lures he found plenty of feeding fish just below the surface in the middle of the basin.

Tunbridge wells Fly Fishers enjoyed there day on Friday. 3 boats caught 50 plus fish on a range of patterns all fished on or near to surface. Mr Pacey also caught well returning 8 rainbows which came to a weighted cats whisker. Ian Jobe bank fished for the morning. Starting at the Chestnut tree he could see the odd fish moving and targeted them with a single minkie fly on a floating line. He found the secret to be not to fish one spot for more than twenty minutes and not to wade as the fish were coming right into the bank. Ian finished the day having caught 11 fin perfect rainbows two of which were over 4lbs.

Saturday saw 9 members of the British Float Tube Association take to the water. Most didn’t venture to far from the lodge, fishing in dog wood bay and around the tower. The returns were super with every angler catching fish and many catching well into double figures. Most fish coming to washing line nymphs or size 14 dries. Eyebrook regulars John Punt and Andy Gallacher had one of the best days of their session. Boating 14 fish on foam daddies.

Sunday was a day of two halves. Perfect conditions during the morning with fish coming to dries but the sun rose and clouds departed during the afternoon making things ‘challenging’. Dry fly expert Ed Douglas enjoyed steady drifts across the main basing. Fishing dries he netted 7 fish during the morning and changed to a washing line set up for the afternoon and caught a further 9. Farther and son tea, Mark Seabrook and Scott had a successful trip. Returning a dozen fish between which came to a large daddy tied with orange wings.

The great fishing looks to continue for the remaining two weeks of the season, with good weather forecast and plenty of feeding fish in the reservoir.

NEW LODGE LANDLINE – 01536 770 264 – please update your contact list as this will be the only landline working for the Eyebrook Fishing Lodge

Eyebrook produced great sport this week with an overall rod average of 4.6. Various methods working as the fish change their feeding habits from insect to fry feeding. Dries have worked during warmer days with most fish coming blind to daddies and hoppers. Nymphs fished on a washing line have caught well. Black buzzers or crunchers fished with either a FAB or floating fry on the point are working well. Most of the fry action is coming to lures fished in the top three feet. Minkies or zonkers on a floating or slow intermediate line are working well. Most boats are drifting the basin into the wooded bank. There are still a number of resident fish around the weed along the willows and stoke dry but are particularly difficult to tempt. A single floating fry or corixa pattern working best for these fish.

Bank anglers are having mixed success depending on wind speed and direction. Most choose to fish the Belle and hawthorns. Others have ventured to the island and chestnut and have more success. Fry and Corixa patterns working best. There are feeding fish between the water’s edge and weed beds in a few inches of water. It is advisable to make a steady approach to the bank and avoid wading to begin.

Monday fished extremely well in extremely challenging conditions. A strong westerly wind blew and most boats chose to take shelter on the Leicester bank, anchored or making short drifts. Mr Woods, Mr Munro and Mr Kay enjoyed the first of their three days fishing at Eyebrook. (we offer discounted rates for both single and two man boats on a three day ticket across all our waters. Visit our website for full details www.flyfishstore.com) The competent trio caught nearly 50 fish on white lures, pulled daddies and hoppers. Mr Grele bank fished between the hawthorns and Sam’s Dyke and caught 5 fish on a size 12 black buzzer fished on a washing line.

The middle of the week was interesting with changeable conditions. Mr Hunter caught a dozen fish on a ‘little devil’ or ‘Diawl Bach’ as it is more commonly known. Luke Key and boat partner Marcle Kwisinle caught 14 fish on a catswhisker fished on a floating line whilst drifting the main basin.

Friday produced a great rod average of 6.2. Eyebrook held a corporate event for Sygenta UK. 18 anglers enjoyed great hospitality with bacon rolls for breakfast, great fishing and fish and chips to finish. Tim Burn was absolutely un stoppable and caught 32 fish which easily took him and his boat partner Richard Ward to win the day. For information regarding corporate events please speak to member of staff at the Eyebrook lodge on 01536 770 264.

Other notable catches during Friday were Mr Vicedo from France and friends catching and returning a boat full each on blobs and mini sparklers. Mr Burley and Campbell found lots of feeding fish off the dam wall and caught on a cats whisker. Member Mr Bilsden and Tibbet got stuck into fish off Robbos cabin, Fishing black and green lures and FAB’s.

The sport continued into the weekend with many anglers experiencing red letter days. Draycote Member Mr Edward Douglas stuck to dry flies and was rewarded with 14 quality rainbows for his efforts. Mr Alan Grant made the 100 yards trip and anchored just past the tower. He remained there for his 6 hour session and caught 18 fish on fry patterns fished in the top few feet.
